Titanic Passenger – Karen Abelseth

My grandmother, Karen Abelseth was a 3rd class survivor.  She was in lifeboat 16. She was 16 years old .

Even though I have lost the information to the person listed here I am posting it in hopes they will see it and come back and give us more information about this young lady.

    I am one of her grandaughters. She died in 1969. I have more information, if interested. Her letter to her father, which was found about ten years ago, is an interesting and poignant account of the sinking through the eyes of a young person

  2. Dear Randi:

    I am interested in more information about your grandmother, to include the letter to her father, if you wouldn’t mind sharing it. Did you have many conversations with her regarding her time on the Titanic? My daughter is in a play entitled “Titanic Lives” and she is playing Karen Ableseth. 🙂 That’s why I am looking here. I would like to see a picture of her, too – at age 16 (my daugher is 15) and in later years if you don’t mind sharing. Thank you so much for sharing with us. I hope to hear from you soon. My e-mail address is cindyfox86@hotmail.com.

    God bless you richly!
    Because of Jesus,
    Cindy Fox

About This Site

This website relates to the story of the Titanic. The Grand Ocean liner sank during its maiden journey on April 15, 1912. The death toll was 1523 of the 2228 passengers and crew members aboard. There were only 705 that survived. But there is more to the story of the Titanic than just the sinking. There is the connection people feel when they open their hearts to the event. Then there is also the Children of the Titanic, the people that are related to a person aboard the ship. In all reality anyone that feels connected in there heart to the Titanic somehow can be called a "Child of the Titanic". So on that note! Welcome to the site!
